Annie Troe has kindly featured my 'Beside the Seashore' pattern square on her 'Pattern Parade' this week where she promotes designers by linking to their portfolios through her blog and social media. Annie has a wonderful blog, which is full of interesting information about art licensing, as well as lots of lovely art, which you can take a look at here.
'Beside the Seashore' is one of my art licensing collections that will be shown by my agents, Jewel Branding at Surtex next month. The patterns were inspired by two holidays I took last year in England, where I loved just wandering along the beach, or looking at the little fishing boats docked in the harbour. I am so inspired by looking at the sea - I couldn't wait to draw it all! I hope the collection captures all of the special moments that make a British seaside holiday. The drawings certainly hold a lot of happy memories for me!
Please contact Jewel Branding to view the whole collection.

The designs featured in my last post are from my art licensing collection, Bright Hearts and are also available from my Etsy store as art tiles. Stand them on a shelf or use a plate hanger and display them as wall art. They are sure to brighten up any room and as many are available to personalise with your own special message they really are a unique gift for someone you love!
The above print is a stand alone design that is perfect for weddings, anniversaries or as an engagement gift. Below the wall tiles also feature additional folk inspired illustrations from my art licensing collection, Folk Tale.
Contact me to license designs or for collaborations here.

My first line of mugs in my Etsy store feature a selection of romantic designs, that are bright and fun! Many such as the Mr & Mrs mugs above and the He / She Put A Ring On It mugs below can be personalised and make unique gifts for occasions such as Valentine's Day, or engagement, wedding and anniversary gifts for a special couple!
You can make your loved one smile on any occasion with one of my cheeky typography designs.
... Or just tell them how much they mean to you...

I am delighted to tell you that I have finally got round to opening my own online store through Etsy!
My plan is to sell uniquely designed homeware and gifts, which I will make by hand in my home studio. I have invested in a variety of sublimation equipment including a brilliant new printer, which allows me to transfer my vibrant designs onto all sorts of products using a heat press. I have been testing products for a few months and am really happy with the quality and beautiful colours I am able to achieve. A lot of items are customisable, so visit my store for truly personal gifts for your family and friends!

Earlier in the year I created a Christmas line drawing page and submitted it to a selection panel for the Art Licensing Show Christmas colouring book. The idea of the colouring book is to be a free downloadable resource that can be used by anyone from schools to hospitals in order to spread some cheer over the festive season. I was delighted to find that not only was my page selected for inclusion in the colouring book, but my designs are also used on the inside and back covers. Hopefully it will help to spread lots of happiness this Christmas! Use the link in pink to download your copy!
